Wiremind Set to Launch SKYPALLET 2.0 This Summer

Wiremind is preparing to launch the upgraded version of its space optimization tool, SKYPALLET 2.0, this summer. The new iteration has been developed using extensive feedback from several leading airlines and aims to provide a more intuitive interface, faster processing speeds, and enhanced workflow automation through its integration with CARGOSTACK.

Since its debut in 2017, SKYPALLET has established itself as a space optimization and palletization tool for airlines, General Sales Agents (GSAs), charter brokers, and forwarders. It was the first commercial software to offer 3D visualisation and optimization specifically for air cargo, addressing significant challenges within the industry. Initially designed to help commercial teams quote shipments more efficiently, SKYPALLET has evolved to support full flight optimizations for over 25 customers.

SKYPALLET 2.0 introduces several key enhancements, including a rewritten code base for faster calculations and more advanced palletization algorithms, deeper integration with the CARGOSTACK ecosystem for significant workflow automation, the addition of new data points like freight status and build characteristics for more detailed results, and a revamped user interface that improves user experience with more intuitive workflows and information displays.

“Various improvements to SKYPALLET over the years means it is now used at multiple touchpoints and processes in the air cargo lifecycle by our customers. While SKYPALLET has already been integrated to customer systems through its API, it has remained a stateless application relying on external systems to provide shipment and capacity inputs per calculation,” said Nathanaël de Tarade, Wiremind Cargo CEO.

“By incorporating it into CARGOSTACK as part of our version 2.0, we now have the architecture to retrieve and hold all the relevant inputs consumed by the palletization algorithm, through what we call a stateful or deep integration with a customer’s core reservation system.”

“This enables different automated workflows such as running SKYPALLET autonomously in the background using the booking, flight and aircraft data to recommend outputs back to the airline system such as the remaining available volume, suggest offloads and significantly automate the flight release process. We are also excited because SKYPALLET 2.0 is unlocking a number of new use cases which we are actively exploring with early adopter customers,” he concluded.

SKYPALLET 2.0’s new capabilities are set to unlock various use cases, including managing special load processes, in-warehouse build planning and execution, and aircraft weight and balance management. The system can now be utilised throughout the entire cargo lifecycle, from quotation to booking acceptance, capacity control, flight release, and operations, thereby optimising space usage at every stage to maximise revenue.

The rollout of SKYPALLET 2.0 will be implemented progressively over the next 12 to 18 months, accompanied by a comprehensive change management plan.

SKYPALLET 2.0 is developed by Wiremind Cargo, a founding member of CargoTech.
